Since COVID-19 struck, I've been playing Dungeons & Dragons online with some friends. My first character was the ill-fated Skollvog the Unrelenting, a nature-loving barbarian who died in an ambush before even reaching level four. He is now known as Skollvog the Unremembered.
Before we started playing, I wrote up some quips Skollvog might drop during the course of the game. These went unused thanks to Skollvog's early death, so I present them here for posterity.
There is always turbulence where two rivers meet.
Lions may roar, but beware the silent hippo.
When you hear the rumbling of distant thunder, be ready for the crash of lightning.
The lion may lie with the lamb for a brief rest, but eventually dinner must be served.
A mountain may look imposing, but even the mightiest will wither with time.
Victory may burn like fire, but even as fire burns, snow can smother.
Lava may be slow, but like Skollvog, it is unrelenting.
Beasts may mate, but only people fall in love.
To cheat Death is natural and good. To cheat Life is to cheat yourself.
Even the tallest mountain will one day be conquered.
Even the fiercest lion retreats when it must.
The true warrior is never lost, but only forging new paths.
